Know Your Pumping Rights!

According to the survey conducted in 2019-2020 by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 84% of infants start out breastfeeding, but only about 25% of infants are breastfed exclusively through six months. Breastfeeding offers numerous wonderful benefits to both the child and the mother, but expressing milk upon a return to work comes with its own set of challenges.
